Cosmetics Confessions: What’s Your Favorite Brown Eyeshadow

By Sheila Arkee

Okay, ladies & gents, it’s time to dish at our weekly open post. Pour the coffee, grab some Double Stuffed Oreos, we’ll be here for awhile!


There was a time in my life when I vowed (VOWED!) to never wear brown eyeshadow, because I was far too colorful for that to happen. Ahem.

As time has gone by, I’ve come to appreciate brown shadow in a way I would never have believed. Brown shadows are such a necessity, in my opinion, and no makeup case is complete without them! Brown is the color of chocolate, for pete’s sake!!!There are several different kinds and varieties, and at the moment I’m totally digging on OCC’s loose pigment in Artifact. It’s such a gorgeous combination of colors, with touches of red and gold within.

What’s your favorite brown eyeshadow?

    Of course all the browns/neutrals in the Naked palettes are safe bets. I really like Nars Fez as well. It’s a good solid crease color.

    I have three! Shiro Cosmetics EVERYTHING IS BEARS (light chocolate with gold and red sparks), Aromaleigh Sybilla (dark true brown with gold sparks), and Aromaleigh Scandale (sheer red brown with pink and green sparks). I love them!

    Scandale is the only LE of the bunch- the other two are permanent.

    I need to bust out my Origins Rootbeer shadow. It’s beautiful and makes my blue eyes pop.
    I rock browns all the time. Right now I’m wearing ELF Long Lasting Lustrous Shadow in Gala which is a beautiful sparkly dark brown.
